    I live in amarillo texas. I'm new to raising chickens. My friend gave me 10 chicks and 4 quail. So any help would be appreciated. The chicks are babies and the quail are full grown. I have 3 female quail and 1 male. They are laying eggs. I would like to get an incubator. Because right now I can't do anything with the quail eggs. So if anyone would like to help me out I would appreciate it. I'm wanting to build a chicken coop and a coop for the quail. Take care and thanks everyone.
